The Pear Tree

There was twa lads belanged this nation,
Dundee be their port of station
Gan oot one night as I am told,
Just tae hae a fun-like stroll

Wi a hi dum ho dum, tum a like a daisy,
Tum a like a daisy wi a tum a lum a lo.

These twa lads, they spied a pear tree,
Where pears grew thick as could be;
Tae hae a pear they were inclined,
So up this pear tree they did climb.

Up this pear tree they got landed,
Up this pear tree they got stranded;
It wisna the pears that caught their ee,
But a lad an a lass lyin in a-low the tree.

Well this young man began to embrace her,
This young man began to unlace her;
He pit doon his coat tae save her goun,
When aa the pears come a-rummilin doon.

Well this young lad gazed up in wonder,
They belted down the tree like thunder;
He picked up his lass an awa did flee,
And he left his coat lyin in a-low the tree.

The owner of the coat they did enquire,
The owner of the coat wis their desire;
But the owner of the coat they never found out,
So they got a bloody fine coat for nowt.

Ye lads and lasses wha gang acoortin,
Dinae gay coortin in a-low a pear tree;
Or if ye do ye’ll hear a soun,
When aa the pears come a-rummilin doon.
